Nanny and Papa

Yesterday we said good bye to Graham's parents (Judith and Roger). We had such a nice visit and our spirits were really lifted having them here. Roger and Graham went and worked on the boat a few of the days! Graham said what a great boost in momentum it was to have his Dad here and to get into and finish a couple of jobs that had been looming over his head for awhile.

We also rented a car and saw some parts of the island we hadn't seen before and even a new waterfall. The freedom that comes with having wheels felt really good. The weather was great while they were here to, some nights we didn't even need a fan.

Nanny Judith brought peanut brittle and made fudge and muffins while she was here. We all had our sugar fix. Made it feel more like the Christmas holidays for sure. Amelia and Nanny even made Christmas ornaments.

Roger and Judith took the kids to a Rotary meeting here in Grenada. We are all so proud to have a father/Grandfather who is a District Governor of Rotary. Roger is dedicated to Rotary international's goals of Health, Literacy and Education. Amelia said she was nervous about where they were going for the lunch meeting because it looked kinda shabby but once the doors opened inside was a beautiful room done up nicely for lunch. Her take on things is always so funny. Alex said it was better than church!

The kids and I went to the airport with them and saw them to the gate. When the doors closed the tears started flowing. Life seemed so much better with them here! Thank goodness we are heading to Curasco in only a week.


  1. Sounds like you got some of the breathing space you needed - as well as getting some extra boat work done.
    We are really looking forward to sharing Christmas with you guys and Rob here in Curacao. Tell Amelia we even got some moore decorations for her to supervise putting up!!!

  2. Sorry - wrong button - of course you knew it was us anyway who left the last comment

    question - do they drive on the 'wrong' side of the road in grenada? what's that like?

  4. Im glad you guys had such a nice visit. Nannie and Papa were looking forward to seeing you!!! Tell Millie that i will post the video of my Christmas lights for her tonight......That should get you in the spirit. Plus the fact that we have received about 3.5 feet of new snow on the is a winter wonderland :)
